NESSCI is located in the eastern foothills of Adelaide, 2 km east of the Tea Tree Gully Hotel, on one of the more historic sites in the State. The pistol and rifle ranges at the western end of the property are nestled in the Glen Ewin Quarries, opened in 1856, from which sandstone was derived for construction of parts of the Adelaide GPO, Town Hall, St Peters Cathedral, St Francis Xavier Cathedral, Flinders St Baptist Church, and other notable buildings in Adelaide. A pottery clay pit on the eastern end of the property, opened in 1927 but closed a few years later during the Great Depression, now houses a modern 50 m pistol range.
